Whether they’re our staff or customers, people are at the heart of what drives me.

I’m an industry veteran with more than 24 years of experience, primarily in the Financial Services Sector.

I joined Kocho from Altron, where I was National Head of Campus operations for a large South African Blue Chip Banking Group, Standard Bank. I’ve also held numerous senior management and leadership positions within the IT sector.

Most of my career has been in large enterprise. As a result, I bring a corporate pedigree to the table.

I hold various qualifications from prestigious universities, including Stellenbosch University Business School, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, and a Master’s Degree from the University of Cape Town.

My ‘become greater’ ambition is to build a competitive South African Operation that delivers exceptional service on a global scale, and to be the provider of choice for our existing and new customers.

I feel great when surfing with my kids, spending time with them in the water, and being in the moment, watching them grow.
